The final Monday Night Raw before WrestleMania 36 is loaded with multiple legends already announced to appear on the show.
One such legend is The Undertaker. “The Phenom'' will appear on Monday Night Raw one final time before the first-ever Boneyard Match between himself and AJ Styles at WrestleMania.
The Undertaker and AJ Styles are set to battle in what Styles described as The Phenom’s signature bout — a Boneyard Match — at WrestleMania. But The Deadman has been notably silent throughout the pair’s rivalry, choosing to answer Styles’ insults against him and his family with actions rather than words. An appearance on the final Raw before WrestleMania will give The Last Outlaw an opportunity to break his silence — or perhaps put another hurting on who’s become his most personal rival in years.
Also, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will make one final appearance before his title showdown with Drew McIntyre at the Showcase of the Immortals.
Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre have not been in the same building in the weeks since Lesnar absorbed a trio of Claymores from his WrestleMania challenger. That may or may not change on Monday, but The Beast Incarnate will be on Raw, making what’s become his customary appearance on the last show before a high-profile title match. Tune in to Monday Night Raw, live Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network, to see the WWE Champion and more.
A legend in her own time, Becky Lynch will also make one final appearance on the show that she has anchored for the last year. At WrestleMania 36, she will face Shayna Baszler in their first-ever one-on-one encounter.
The Road to WrestleMania has gone about as well for Becky Lynch as could be imagined: The Raw Women’s Champion has one-upped Shayna Baszler at every turn since The Queen of Spades’ historic romp through the Elimination Chamber, seemingly setting herself as the favorite for the pair’s title match at The Showcase of the Immortals. This Monday on Raw, Lynch will appear one final time before they square off at a historic WrestleMania and look to essentially close things out for good.
Lastly, WWE Hall of Famer Edge will make one final appearance on Monday Night Raw before his return to the ring after 9 years in singles competition. Edge will face Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing Match at WrestleMania 36. Both men have not been face to face in 3 weeks, since Edge laid out Randy Orton with his own RKO on the March 9 episode of Raw from the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Following an appearance by Randy Orton on this past Monday’s Raw, Edge has the match he wants: A Last Man Standing bout with his former friend at WrestleMania. It’s a fitting conclusion for one of the more twisted rivalries in WrestleMania memory. But before the final chapter is written, The Ultimate Opportunist will make an appearance on this Monday’s Raw. What will he have to say before he goes and proves his grit at The Only WrestleMania Too Big for Just One Night?
This year, WrestleMania 36 was taped in advance from an empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and mandated social distancing.
This week's episode of Raw will also need to address at least one major change to an advertised championship match at WrestleMania. If you are not opposed to spoilers, click here to see what match has been changed.
